In Technology World No. 9/2018, we picked out five rechargeable hybrid cars of different types, one of which is the newcomer Volvo XC60 T8 Twin Engine AWD. It's relatively lonely in its genre because it has a total power of 407 horsepower and costs a good bit over half a million (and which reliably slows away over $ 700,000 if you put on "little" equipment).
In the test we investigated how far the cars can roll with the electric motor alone as a power source. We drove our selected loop a total of 6.7 miles, which includes a few kilometers of city driving followed by motorways and mixed-country roads with speeds of 50, 70, 80 and 90 km / h. We followed the traffic rush so it was not about a distinctive snow run.
It should be added that the occasion when the Volvo XC60 was driven on the distance, the temperature ratio was slightly different (a little lower temperature) than when the other cars were driven.

None of the charge hybrids reached the range of the NEDC driving cycle. However, some were quite close, others not
